The Cinnamon King
This older gentleman was carving cinnamon sticks out of the branches of a cinnamon tree in his hut on a small island in the middle of Koggala Lake, which we traveled to by motorboat. It was an absolutely amazing process to watch especially because despite the fact I am an avid chef, I really didn't know where and how cinnamon sticks we use in our food is made. He also made rope from the fibers left over from the carving process as well as cinnamon oil from the bark--very ecologically friendly and useful!
